Elmyriachi gets busy in Kirkwood

Last week, this message surfaced on its Facebook page: "Again ….we have run out of food. Thank you Monday peeps! Give us a day to regroup and we will try and kill it on Wednesday." Located in a former Mrs. Winner's space, the casual spot features the likes of Pad Thai burritos, build-your-own-tacos, margaritas, craft beer on tap and a large patio.
